Does anyone know where I can find the Hymns of Orpheus in Greek? Thanks in advance.

You can download a 1860 edition of the early Greek philosophers containing Orphic Hymns from http://gallica.bnf.fr/

Although it allowed me to look at the pages of Fragmenta Philosophorum Graecum individually, I didn't see an option for downloading the entire text. Was I just looking at the wrong one?

When you see your text, presumably on
http://visualiseur.bnf.fr/Visualiseur?Destination=Gallica&O=NUMM-28210

then click on "Télécharger" (Download, in red at the top of the page), click on the little "ok" in a ring at the bottom of the following screen, then on the next screen click on "en cliquant ici" with the right button of the mouse and click on something that read in French "Enregistrer la cible du lien sous..." (Save link target under... or something else in English, anyways it is the fourth line in the menu that appears when clicking with the right button). It should work, because I have downloaded it (and I thank you for it).

Good luck !

Orpheus and Orphica pp. 191 - 219. Also Linus p. 184 ss. and Musaeus p. 187 ss. are maybe of interest for you.

:shock:

Thank you, Skylax, for pointing this site out. I now have a 1494 Anthologia Graeca Planudea.

Yes, there are treasures hidden on this site.

The only thing is that the book I recommended to cweb255 does maybe not include the real "Orphic hymns". I think these are only fragments assigned to Orpheus, thus more ancient texts than the Hymns that are from the 1st and 2nd centuries AD. :?

I found also this site http://homepage.mac.com/dodecatheon/24OR.swf
but the downloaded documents don't want to get open, so I don't know if the Greek text is there...
